Poll Tax Requirement in Elec
Enquiries are oft-m made as
to what is required in the Elec
tion Law, in regard to payment
of tax as a pre-requisite to vot
ing. We therefore print a sum
mary of the provisions of the
law, prepared by Senator Sim
mons, bearing on this point,
with a request that all persons
acquaint themselves with the
law, which is as follows :
SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS OF
ELECTION LAW IX REGARD TO
PAYMENT OF t'OLL TAX.
Under the provisions of sec
tion 13, chapter 89, Acts of
1901, carrying out a require
ment of the Constitutional
Amendment, no-one will be
allowed to vote in the next State
election unless he pays his poll
tax now due by the first of next
May. And it also provides that
before the person shall be al
lowed to vote he shall exhibit
to the registrar his poll tax re
ceipt, signed by the sheriff or
tax collector, and unless this re
ceipt bears date before the fir«t
day of next May lie will not be
aiiowed to vote. But in lieu of
such poll tax receipt the regis
trar and judges of election are
permitted to allow one who has
paid his tax within the time
a'iove required to vote upon his
along an i subscribing an oath
to that e; -ct. And any person
v.. \ ha*.lug pai l his taxes
within the time above specified
and having lost hi tax receipt,
>i;ali, upon makin affidavit of
bitch 10-s, be entitled to a dup
licate thereof from the sheriff or
tax collector. r ihe law also pro
vides that it a, sheriff or tax col
lector wilfully fails to give a tax
receipt to any person paying
his poll tax, or giving a false
date, he shall be guilty of a mis
Of course the act provides
that persons who have become
of age since the first day of last
June, or who were fifty years of
age or over on the first day of
last June, shall not be required
to produce a poll tax receipt,
because not required by law to
pay poll tax. There is also a
like exemption in favor of per-J
sons relieved from the payment !
of poll tax by county commis-i
sioners on account of poverty or
The section also requires the
tax collector, between the first
and tenth day of May, 190*2, to
certify under oath a true and
correct list of all persons who
have paid poll tax for the pre
vious year, on or before the
first day of May, to the Clerk of
the Superior Court, and makes
him guilty of a misdemeanor
for failing to,comply with this

Our Cotton Will be Needed.
The decline in cotton prices
tlie last three wepks, amounting
to about one cent per pound, is
naturally a disappointment to
growers, yet there is no note of
real discouragement. The down
-1 turn is due largely to bearish
| speculators in foreign markets,
| who exaggerate the situation
and claim more for our south
ern crop volume than can be
realized. The movement from
first hands is liberal, as is to be
expected at this time of year.
Yet conservative opinion points
to an ultimate yield of less than
11,000,000 bales, rather than
What is of still greater im
portance, our great staple will
all be needed. There is indus
trial depression in Germany,
but this means increased activ
ities at spinning centers in Eng
land and tfie Uuited States.
The consumptive demand for
cotton goods should prove at
least a normal in the old world,
and better than that here at
home, where there is general
prosperity among all classes.
The southern cotton spinners'
association, in annual conven
tion at Atlanta this week, is
very wisely taking up in ear
nest the question of increasing
our foreign outlet for American
made goods. —Home & Farm.

The Troublesome Corn.
How to Treat This Painful
Growth on the foot.
A corn is an overgrowth of
the horny layer of some portion
of the skin of the foot induced
by friction or under pressure in
one spot by the shoe, says
Youth's Companion. It is sit
uated generally on a prominent
portion of one of the toes, more
I commonly the little toe, but
may be on the sole of the foot
or even on the ankle bone.
The first thing to do for a
corn is to get new shoes that
are so snug as not to rub the
foot anywhere and so loose as
not to make pressure in one
spot more than in another.
Th(s top of the corn may be
pared with a sharp knife, ex
treme care being taken, espec
ially in the case of the aged,
not to cut the sound skin, or it
may be filed down to the leryel
of the surrounding js.kyi,...or-the
entire corn may sometimes-be
loosened with a dull
or by the finger riaif.and
tracted from its bed.--
When this cannot be ddti§,
removal may be facilitated by
moistening the corn every other
day with glacial acetic acid, the
softened part being subsequent
ly scraped away with a dull
knife or a small file. A salve
containing salicylic acid ap
plied every night will also fre
quently loosen the corn so that
it can be pulled out. This
is the basis of many of the
popular corn plasters.
A soft corn, which is merely
a corn that is always moist on
account of its location on the
inner surface of one of the toes,
should be treated by keeping a
piece of absorbent cotton be
tween the toes so as to prevent
marceration and by bathing it
frequently with strong alum

and the President died Septem

gan at Washington, November
14tli, and w£is prolonged. Ou.
January 25tb, 1882, the jury
rendered a verdict of guilty of
murder in the first degree. The
assassin was hanged in the jail
yard at Washington, June3oth.
President McKinley was shot
at Buffalo, September 6th, and
died in the same city at 2 :15 a.
m., September 14th. Czolgosz
was put on trial there Septem
ber 23rd, and on September
26tli was sentenced to death in
the electric chair, which sen
tence was fulfilled October 29th,
one day later than the shortest
time allowed by law.
Thus Booth was shot 12 days

crime, Guitteau was hanged 363

electrocuted 53 days after.—

A Remarkable Northern View
At last there has been found
that hitherto undiscovered indi
vidual, a northern man who can
see things from the Southern
point of view, and found, too,
of all places, in Boston. 1 ' The
Boston man has written a pam
phlet on the Booker Washing
ton dinner, in the course of
which he says:
"It is time that the people of
the South realize how hopeless
it is to win the sympathy of cer
tain circles at- the North. To
Republican fanatics—the right
ful heirs to that band of charla
tans who plundered the South
in her poverty, oppressed her
in her weakness, and mocked at
her calamity —the contributions
of the Southern people to the
prosperity of the nation are
without significance. It means
nothing to them that for thirtr
five years the South has fought
the most heroic battle in human
history ; it means nothing • that
the South has supported itself,
paid promptly its share of the
national debt incurred by its co
ercion ; contributed enormously
each year to the payment of
Federal pensions ; developed a
system of education for both
races, giving one-third of the
educational fund to the negro j
schools ; opening up highways |
throughout the land; wisely;
discharging the obligations of
citizenship, city, State and
national, and devoting itself
with intelligent loyalty to the
interests of the hole country.
To fanatics at the North who,
blinded by partisan rage, have
never kept a pledge or obeyed a
law, the South is but a land to
be deposiled, ard the Southern
people but a people to he perse
cuted." Norfolk Virginian-

When any manufacturer
wants low priced tobacco and
tries to buy it at the same time,
is ju*t what makes high priced
tobacco, and this is exactly the
process that has been going on
for a year or more in our mar
ket- ; it is Irss than low grades
( have been abnormally .scarce,
than the fact that everybody
has to be doing their best to
make a bad grade of tobacco at
1 a low price. Now that this
i part of the crop is practically
totally exhausted, with a short
now bright crop, what can be
expected but higher prices, or
what is to be had in the better
grades that will pu«h each oth
er up higher? Th *re are other
caiiMis for higher tobacco, and
stiil none so u-eful or so popu
lar or cheap or in better demand
can be produced. The trust
process of buying has made low
prices so long that' the trade
lias become so much accustom
ed thereto that a fair advance
looks like a much greater one.
